The Civic Learning Programme

The Sciences Po's Civic Learning Programme invites students to develop a sense of their civic responsibilities. In a specific, personally elaborated project on a theme of their choice, they have the opportunity of turning theory into practice, and to make a contribution in the fields of the general interest, the common good and the promotion of equality and solidarity.

The Civic Internship

The first-year civic internship represents an integral part of their study programme, and takes place between mid-May and mid-August. It lasts a minimum of 4 to 6 consecutive weeks (140 hours minimum), and is to be carried out in a public, associative or private. Students are asked to favor non-partisan, non-profit-making and socially useful structures.

In direct contact with people and the public, students are asked to contribute to implementing socially useful actions, promoting values such as equality and solidarity.

A second year free Civic Project internship, spread out over the two semesters, completes and consolidates the first year internship experience.
